Silly-high capture rates

I've been running for many months (all year- since I've installed ZM) w/o errors like this. Just got this error (several of many): Camera4: 521000 - Capturing at 1000.00 fps Have four cameras and all were reporting high capture rates. I do NOT have any max capture rate set. FPS analysis is 1. Until ...

Re: event email notification for alarms

What do your logs say? (filter the logs using ""zmfilter") Hard to tell if it's the e-mail mechanics or your filter's logic. The filter logic seems to have some issues. It is a bit narrow in scope in that it's only accepting a match of only a single alarmed frame. Perhaps make this "greater than or ...

Re: Run State filter test?

OK, thanks for the clarification. Knowing that it'll be in the next release I'll just hold off and wait: I'd compiled 1.30.4 previously when I was testing an implementation (new to ZM) and found it to be a bit of a headache (I did, however, manage to get it to compile and work); I'm basically in pro...

Re: Run State filter test?

You "hacked it into 1.30.4?" Not part of 1.30.4? Everything you link to points to that github 1752 thread and that thread only states that there is a code change (supposedly for this), there is no mention of how it was implemented (I cannot find any documentation). The SMS_Notification Notes points ...

Re: Run State filter test?

I see that there's something in 1.31?

https://github.com/ZoneMinder/zoneminder/pull/1752

But I cannot find much else discussing it.

Run State filter test?

I've run across having a similar needs as I, but it's been approached in a different (what I believe is more complicated) manner. I'm thinking that having a filter test for "Run State" (string comparison) would allow me to create a run state of say "NoEmail" and I could toggle the server's run state...

Re: Analysis FPS

I just stumbled across this thread after having difficulties finding any documentation on this setting. Reason I was looking at this setting was because I was wanting to do some tweaking on my cameras' frame rates. My cameras are all streaming at 20FPS and I thought that this was unnecessarily high ...

Re: SOLVED

Educational process for sure. I had not realized that in order to automate filters one had to set/check "Run filter in background." Thought that their existence as filters would mean they were all considered for every event. Seems obvious now, but... The documentation mentions this but only in a mo...

Re: Insanely long alarm times

I seem to recall having a similar issue quite a while back. Most alarms lasted a minute or 2 but occasionally one would go on forever. From what I can remember I solved it by either changing "Reference Image Blend %ge" from "no blending" to 12.5% and/or changing the "Alarm Frame Count" from 1 to 3....

Re: What are "_TempFilterXXXXX" filters?

Amazed that this isn't really documented...

Appears that these filters are created by the system when one manually triggers an "Execute" on a filter.

Re: Nubie: Questions on Settings

I'm still trying to decipher what these settings are, but I "think" that that one has to do with, for a lack of a better word, "intensity" of change of/for the changed pixels.

If you review the alarms and bring up the alarmed frames you should see what is causing the alarms.

Re: Zoneminder still tries to access disabled camera

How are you making this settings change, and are you saving the change?

What is listed when you bring up the Function window?

Not sure if it's possible or not, but perhaps check for multiple process.

What are "_TempFilterXXXXX" filters?

I had some issues with filters not triggering e-mail like I'd figured/desired. During my messing around I deleted a "_TempFilter" and I thought that this might have screwed me up. I think I now have a custom filter set up correctly (not run in the background), but when looking in my log file I see z...
